in the year of the rat

risin' up, back on the street
did my time, took my chances
went the distance, now i'm back on my feet
just a man and his will to survive

so many times, it happens too fast
you change your passion for glory
don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past
you must fight just to keep them alive

it's the eye of the tiger, it's the cream of the fight
risin' up to the challenge of our rival
and the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
and he's watchin' us all in the eye of the tiger

italicized lyrics lifted from the song - eye of the tiger by the survivors, track #1 at the eye of the tiger album released last march 1982
